The Permutahedron
or What I did on My Summer Vacation

What the heck is a Permutahedron?  What does it have to do with Permutations?  What does it have to do with Polyhedra?  What makes this three dimensional object so cool?  We'll discuss the answers to these questions and more!  You'll get to make your very own permutahedron!  Come and find out why  abstract mathematics is sometimes tangible and always intriguing!

Please join us for light refreshments at 4:15pm outside WSC 109.
